Reflecting on the relationship in his new book, A Hard Kick in the Nuts: What I’ve Learned from a Lifetime of Terrible Decisions, he said he “still resented me” for the way they ended.
In response, Ulrika wrote in The sun: ‘I was quite horrified to think that this kind of behavior continued. Stacey was with this man for six months.
“She would have gotten to know her family and her two sons, Leighton and Zachary. I can only imagine how bewildered, confused, heartbroken and angry Stacey must have been.

“Because the problem with just disappearing – extracting yourself from someone’s life in this way – is that instead of drawing a line under things, it raises more questions.
“Stacey won’t have been the first and she won’t be the last, that’s quite the way of doing things these days.”
Ulrika went on to share her own experiences of being a ghost, saying she was “baffled” when someone she had been on a date with just “disappeared”.
Unlikely couple Stacey and Steve-O met while appearing on TV show The Jump in 2015, but it was revealed they had split six months later, with Stacey “really hurt” by the situation.

In his book, The Sun reports that Steve-O shared details of the relationship – showing remorse for the way it was handled.
He admitted that despite being ‘in love’ with Stacey, he quickly ghosted her, despite meeting her two young children, Leighton and Zachery at the time.
“I was seduced, I showered her with attention, I got what I wanted and then I broke up. I was not only part of her life, I was also part of her children’s life. And then – poof – I left,” the Jackass star wrote.
Continuing: “To this day, I’m still struggling with how it happened.”
Where it all started: The unlikely couple met while appearing on TV show The Jump in 2015, but it was revealed they had split six months later, with Stacey being ‘really hurt’ by the situation.
The TV star, who was battling sex addiction at the time, reflected on her “self-sabotaging” relationship structure, which also followed struggles with alcohol and drugs.
But while Steve-O holds himself accountable for the actions, it seems Stacey has no bad blood, as he went on to say that she doesn’t seem to have a grudge against him.
At the time, Stacey shared that she was “still trying to figure out” what was wrong as she was asked why they broke up.
While her representative told MailOnline at the time: ‘I can confirm that Stacey and Steve-O are no longer together. Stacey is really hurt by the whole situation, and it’s not something she feels able to talk about right now.
But the heartbreak appears to have worked out for the better in the long run, with Stacey marrying husband Joe Swash earlier this year, and the couple welcoming their youngest children Rex and Rose.
While things have also looked up for Steve-O, who is now engaged to stylist Lux Wright.
